About Roger Lane

I was born in Hawaii, my family has been here for over 129 years since 1885. My Grandmother was the first telephone operator at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in 1927. I used to have a home a block from this apartment building before I moved to La Jolla California. I moved back to Hawaii in 2003 into this apartment, it is truly spectacular. In 2007 I moved to Hana Maui and decided to let other people have the time of their life in my Heaven ON THE BEACH.

Roger Lane purchased this condo in 2002

Why Roger Lane chose Waikiki

I was living in La Jolla California, and came back to Hawaii every year to visit my family. In 2002 I noticed an OPEN HOUSE sign at this address and decided to go in since I always admired this building, The Colony Surf, when I lived here. When I saw this apartment I could not believe the view, and how beautiful every detail of the interior was, it was luxury in every way, a designers work of art. I bought it on the spot, thinking some day I would retire here in paradise. I moved into it in 2003. It wasn't till I moved to Hana Maui in 2007 that I decided to rent it.

What makes this condo unique

The first thing that shocks everyone is the view, all ocean, sail boats, surfers and canoes. The second is the sound of the waves all day and at night they put you to sleep peacefully. Third is the daily 'Spectacular Sunsets'. Fourth is the private beach which is easy to take a dip or a wonderful safe swim. The ground floor hosts 'Michele's at The Colony Surf' a famous 4 star restaurant. Across the entrance to The Colony Surf is Kapiolani Park, 50 acres to walk or run 3 miles around. And a 10 minute walk along the beach and you are in Waikiki, for amazing dining , shopping, and fun.

Great location, disappointing unit

  • 3 of 5

Three stars all for location and view -ocean front. We found the condo to be poorly equipped and not well maintained. We tried to use the garborator shortly after arriving. The screaming bearings told me it was cooked. I was able to get in touch with Roger the next day to let him know. His response was basically -oh yeah, the last people in said something about that -I'll have a look when I'm there. - So no garborator for the month. This was a problem worth mentioning that Roger did not attend to, apparently for at least the second straight time.

There was some kind of food stain on the bed sheet, we took the bedding of to wash it and found that the "mattress" is a 4" piece of foam rubber. The only drawers in the unit are at floor level under the window, and they are mostly full of various things. There is a drawer unit in the bathroom closet, you go into the bathroom, close the door and open the sliding mirror behind the door to access the drawers- not a good spot. There is nowhere to hang damp towels or swim shorts etc. We put a broom handle across the top of the shower to the closet to make a rack. The only towel rod in the bathroom is the handle for the shower door. The grills on the freestanding fan unit were loaded with dust.

The kitchen has a small cooktop, a couple of badly warped pans, overhead microwave fan that blows right back at you, no dishwasher, and for us, no garborator. for washing dishes, no drain tray for the counter, just a wee wooden folding rack - lay out a dish towel etc. there are lots of glasses etc. but many of the things that support a months stay are missing or in poor condition. While we loved the location, we would not stay in this unit again. It seems that the owner does his own cleaning and maintenance, and neither too well. -A great location on the gold coast and we will stay at the Colony Surf again, just in a different unit.

Owner's Response: I must say I am very surprised by their review, since none of the other reviews mentioned the same issues, and 50% of my guests are return guests and we have reservations into 2017. But I always tell guests they can call me if they any problem, and these guest did call about the disposal ( which was repaired the month before professionally), I was at the apartment 2 days later ( I flew there since I live on Maui) and had the disposal replaced. I met the guests at that time and they never mentioned any of the other things, so I am very surprised. There are 4 drawers in the main room and 4 more in the large closet, the bed has a 6' mattress and a Temperpedic foam for comfort. I am very sorry they had such an experience, and if I had only known I would have done anything for the correction since I take great pride in my apartment and my guests satisfaction ( as the other reviews can attest to). Aloha, Roger Lane

Hawaii home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I am a frequent VRBO customer....and I'm kinda (ok -very)picky about where I stay. Which leads me to say this condo is unbelievable! I've stayed in Rogers condo 5 years in a row and will be staying the next 5! It truly is my home away from home. Every detail, the linens, dishes, stemware, pots and pans all top of the line. There's a coffee pot, coffee grinder, blender, toaster, microwave and Ice maker! Beach towels, chairs and umbrella as well. The best part is how quiet it is. Hard to believe you're in waikiki. The view is beyond description and hearing the surf so relaxing. Roger is amazing, so easy to work with and available for any questions or concerns. Don't think twice, this is a fabulous condo!

Gorgeous Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our group stayed at this apartment for one month. We prepared for and celebrated a family wedding held nearby. The apartment is in excellent condition and consistent with the listing detail. The staff were extremely helpful throughout our stay. They made us feel like family without being intrusive and we quickly felt like it was really our home away from home. They offered help with shopping, directions, transportation, and several other personal times that made life easier and expedited our wedding preparations and related events. We found it to be well equipped including extra cutlery and dishes, which was well used for our meals. Many beach items such as towels, mats, etc. are available. Our diverse group used many of these and engaged in a variety of recreational activities during our stay. The ocean is nice for quiet recreation and relaxation on the property. The apartment is well located for shopping, access to beaches and golfing. Waikiki is about 20 minutes from Hanauma Bay. We recommend this place for people looking for a friendly, relaxed, and comfortable vacation.

About As Good As It Can Be

  • 5 of 5

Recently we stayed for a month in Honolulu - a combination of business and vacation. A friend suggested Roger's beautiful apartment in the Colony Surf because of its location on the water. Our expectations were exceeded. Not only is it right smack dab on the ocean, but the Colony Surf has its very own private beach just below. The giant window opens up for a panoramic view of the Pacific that goes on forever. And did I mention the sunsets? On the main floor of the building is a famous restaurant, Michel's. Just down the block is another wonderful place with a terrific breakfast menu, the Kaimana Beach Hotel. Waikiki is a short walk, and Kapoliani Park is literally across the street. Parking is difficult in Honolulu but this place has its own designated parking place in the building. nice. It's decorated with beautiful things, and the kitchen and bathroom are completely upgraded. We didn't want to leave. Comfortable, breezy and perfect.

Gorgeous Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our seven year old son stayed for five weeks in July and part of August. The unit is like new with a fully stocked gourmet kitchen and furnished with elegant designer furniture. The owner fully utilized the space with ample storage in the remodeled bathroom and living area. Located on Oahu's coveted Gold Coast, the unit has stunning turquoise ocean views, as you can see from the photos on the website. The building is private and secure with attentive management. We loved our daily walks into Waikiki and going to the beach in front of the Condo. The laundry room has all new machines- four washers/dryers and we never waited to do our laundry. We had one issue not worth mentioning and e-mailed the landlord, Roger Lane. He responded immediately and even came to the unit the next day to make sure our concerns were satisfied. We most definitely will stay here again for our next trip to Honolulu! This unit is highly recommended for anyone looking to stay at an exclusive condo on the beach.
